Are you looking for a way to share your knowledge, energy and passion for the local real estate community? Then consider applying for SABOR’s Board of Directors!
As one of the largest associations in the country, members of SABOR’s Board of Directors are recognized on a local and national level for their dedication to the advancement of the real estate industry and the careers of SABOR’s over 13,000 local REALTOR® members.
The Role of a Board Member
You may be wondering, what is the job description of a Director?
The Board of Directors consists of REALTOR® members, serving staggered three-year terms. They may serve up to two consecutive three-year terms.
As the largest trade association in South Texas, and in the top 20 REALTOR® associations in the country, it is a significant commitment to lead this organization.
SABOR Directors are a fiduciary of the association. That means they have a special legal responsibility in connection with the administration, investment, and care of SABOR and its assets. This requires Directors to make careful, good-faith decisions in the best interest of SABOR and its members. Their decisions must be made independently and free of any undue influence from any person or organization, including any other association, MLS or brokerage. They are charged with acting on behalf of the members by determining appropriate actions that best serve the whole membership, while the staff executes the daily management of the Board-directed policies.
Members of the Board of Directors have duties and responsibilities of governing our association, and the association counts on Directors to participate in deliberating issues that impact our members’ daily business lives.
The Board of Directors has the authority to:
- Approve expenditures of the Association
- Set dues
- Set public policy positions as they pertain to the real estate industry
- Establish governing policies of the Association
- Approve member programs, products, and services
Board of Directors meetings are typically held once a month.
